Cast copper alloy bracelet. The hoop is not complete but would have been tied onto the receiver perhaps by a piece of leather. At the object's terminals there are remains of iron rivets which demonstrate how leather or other tying material would have been joined. At one terminal on the outer face there is a lozenge shaped piece of copper alloy attached to the object's body by rivets as there are two rivet holes visible on the inner face of the object. The hoop has two lines running parallel to its form situated at its edges with the cast being raised in between the two. At the very edges of the bracelet on either side there are holes punched through the metal. These are possibly to create decoration or perhaps they were used to attach leather or other material. Some of these holes have been punched off the edge of the metal. Late post-medieval-modern in date.
